Parkinson’s Nebraska Issues Walk the State Challenge August 31-September 12

Parkinson’s Nebraska ( encourages the community to join in their virtual two-week 2020 Walk the State Challenge, August 31-September 12. During this period, participating teams work collectively to exercise, bike, walk, and run a combined total of 455 miles (the distance from Scottsbluff to Omaha). There is no cost to participate; however, teams are encouraged to raise money from friends, family, and coworkers to support the mission of Parkinson’s Nebraska. All funds will stay in Nebraska and be used to increase rural outreach efforts. Teams that raise $455 or more will receive a t-shirt for each member, and teams that raise $500 will be entered into a raffle and receive additional entries for every $250 more that they raise. The challenge will culminate with a virtual celebration on September 13.

The purpose of Walk the State Challenge is not only to raise money for the Nebraska Parkinson’s community but also to raise awareness about the enormous benefits of exercise for people with Parkinson’s.
